The original For the Love of Jasper contest was hosted by ElleCC and LaViePistache in 2009. This contest brought about several amazing entries and a whole new appreciation to the character of Jasper Whitlock Hale (in my humble opinion). We feel that this contest needs to be revisited (and shall be our last revamp of the year) and we look forward to seeing the amazing submissions y’all come up with about our favorite Empath.

We want your portrayal of our favorite Empath!! Give us your best vamp-spers, your boy next door-spers, your psychiatrist-spers, soldier-spers, Dad-spers, cowboy-spers, nerd-sper, musician-sper, chess master-sper, dom-sper, etc. Take what we know of Jasper and let your imaginations run wild. Put him with anyone! Don’t let canon hold you back. Think of what he was like as a human, what would he be like as a human in the modern day? What if he was still with Peter and Charlotte? What if, what if, what if??? Let this be an exploration into the character of Jasper Whitlock Hale.

RULES:

This contest is ANONYMOUS. Whomever you pick to be your beta (and if you have a pre-reader), you need to pinky swear to Keep the Secret. You can pimp the contest but give no indication as to which entry is yours! The only person to know will be the Secret Keeper.

Canon Backstory

Jasper Hale (born Jasper Whitlock in 1844, in Houston, Texas) is one of the few surviving vampires of the Southern vampire wars, who later joined the Olympic coven. After becoming the youngest Major in the Confederate Army, Jasper was set upon by the vampire Maria, who proceeded to turn him in 1863 at the age of 19. After the transformation, Jasper aided Maria in her creation of a newborn vampire army, which successfully conquered the feeding grounds of Texas. However, over the next decades, Jasper became tired of this violent and bloodstained life, because he could feel the emotions of those he killed, which eventually became too much for him. Jasper spent many years training newborn vampires and killed them off when they lost their newborn strength. The battles he fought left his body scarred. During this process, he became depressed and sought something better. A newborn named Peter returned after fleeing Maria’s grasp to ask Jasper to join him and his mate, Charlotte. Jasper traveled for a while but still knew there had to be another way of life.

In 1948 while in Philadelphia, Jasper ducked into a diner to get out from the rain and came face to face with Alice. She told Jasper of her visions of Carlisle and the two of them joined the Cullen family by 1950.
